Mr. Seung-won Lee L.AC's Expert Contributions
  • Does acupuncture help in weight loss?

    From the conclusion, yes. Oriental Medicine emphasizes harmony. Harmony of Yin and Yang, harmony of Qi and blood, harmony of water and fire, harmony of left and right, harmony of up and down. In other words, when our bodies are harmonized, we become healthy and have a strong vitality. In Oriental Medicine, the biggest cause of obesity is dampness. I also think that dampness is caused by viscera, especially spleen disharmony. Therefore, when several viscera, including spleen, are harmonized, you can eliminate dampness and solve obesity. After consulting you to find a near Oriental clinic, I think you can get good results if you combine acupuncture with diet and exercise. Thank you. READ MORE

  • Is it true that people suffering from high blood pressure should not try acupuncture?

    Obesity is not necessarily the cause of hypertension, but the chances of hypertension due to obesity are quite high. It is therefore true that it is helpful to treat the two together. It is practically difficult to treat hypertension and obesity with Oriental Medicine alone. I am confident that I can get a considerable effect in conjunction with Western Medicine treatment. In terms of Oriental Medicine, acupuncture itself has little side effects. There is a risk of stabbing blood vessels or organs during acupuncture. However, the needle itself is very thin and rarely leads to large side effects. Thank you. READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture help in treating vertigo?

    In Oriental Medicine, vertigo is thought to be caused by the following four factors: wind, phlegm, fire, and weakness. Therefore, if the Oriental doctor finds the cause and treats it correctly, vertigo can be eliminated. For your reference, vertigo has a great deal to do with disease and lifestyle. Hypertension, anger, spicy and fatty eating habits, long sitting and working habits, lack of exercise, weakness, etc. Therefore, in order to treat vertigo, it is necessary to refer to Western Medicine and Oriental Medical aspects, and to fix your lifestyle on your own. But first of all, you have to go to the Western Medicine hospital and check up if there are any abnormalities in your brain. Then, it is recommended that you take Oriental Medicine treatment. Thank you. READ MORE

  • I feel very sleepy after my acupuncture session. Is this normal?

    When treating Oriental medicine Treatments For Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD), we mainly use Conception Vessel (Ren Mai) or Kidney Channel. These channels control Yin, which also controls the night, which can eventually be linked to sleep. So, if it does not ruin your everyday life, it might be okay. But above all, it is a good idea to talk to your acupuncturist. This is because your constitution and current treatment may not fit well. Or other factors besides treatment, for example, one of your lifestyle habits may increase your sleep. READ MORE

  • Can an acupuncturist help me with my sleep disorder?

    In Oriental Medicine, sleep is related to the heart. The heart is connected to the spirit, and the heart must be stable to sleep well. It is therefore important to stabilize the heart, or spirit. In addition, when there is a fire in your mind or a problem with your stomach, it also affects sleep. And even if your body is weak, you can not sleep well. Oriental Medicine finds these causes and treats them with appropriate acupuncture and herbal medicine. Thank you. READ MORE

  • How does acupuncture treat indigestion?

    In Oriental Medicine, we think of three reasons why stomach is weak. First, the function of the stomach itself is weak. In this case, it may be due to the inherent weakness of the constitution and the food intake intemperately. Second, stress or anxious worries cause the liver to malfunction, causing stomach problems. And thirdly, if the function of the heart is weakened, the function of the stomach is weakened in turn. When we treat the weakened stomach function, first check the patient's lifestyle. Then figure out what the cause is and then treat it according to the symptoms. Please visit your nearest Oriental Medicine Clinic and get a detailed diagnosis. Thank you. READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture help with my son's asthma?

    In Oriental Medicine, asthma is judged in two ways. First, we think that the Heavenly Qi through lunsg does not go down normally but goes up and asthma occurs. If the function of the lungs is wrong, so Heavenly Qi goes up and it causes a cough. Second, asthma is mainly caused by weakened kidney function. The kidneys pull down the Heavenly Qi through the lungs. If the kidneys do not function properly, Qi will go up and becomes asthma. Therefore, Oriental Medicine treats both lungs and kidneys to treat asthma. If your son is nine years old, you maybe see the kidneys not functioning properly. In this case, you may feel a little taller than your son’s friends, or the immune system of your son may be weaker than usual. In Oriental Medicine, we are treating many asthma patients with acupuncture without side effects and non-chemical herbal medicine. Thank you. READ MORE

  • How does acupuncture help in treating infertility?

    Oriental Medicine has 5,000 years of experience, knowledge and wisdom. In Oriental Medicine, acupuncture and herbal medicine or other therapies improve the physical constitution and promote the possibility of pregnancy. However, it is good to get an accurate diagnosis in Western Medicine before coming to the Oriental clinic. If surgery is needed, it must be resolved first. READ MORE

  • Is acupuncture a complementary treatment or does it treat ailments by itself?

    Acupuncture treatment and other treatments can be done together. Rather, the treatment effect can be enhanced. However, it is better to inform the acupuncture clinic and other therapists of the above facts. READ MORE

  • Brachial plexopathy pain from radiation fibrosis- what will help?

    Brachial plexopathy occurs mainly due to problems in the bundle of nerves emerging between 5th cervical vertebrae and 1st thoracic vertebrae. Also, this symptom is often the result of radiation therapy as in your case. This often causes severe pain and many patients are suffering. So I can guess how much you suffer. In this case, Oriental Medicine can help you in two ways. One is to increase the immunity of the body to help cancer treatment, and the other is to control the pain itself. This allows muscles in painful area to circulate Qi and Blood normally, releasing the muscles and activating the nerve cells to allow the nerve cells to be activated, and then actively functioning. Our clinic has experiences treating many patients with pain, which not only alleviates pain through various methods, but also improves the strength of the body. It helps you to get well on cancer treatment. Oriental Medicine is a non-chemical and natural healing therapy, which can be of great help, especially for cancer patients. Thank you. READ MORE

  • Acupuncture for fertility- will it increase my ovarian reserve?

    I think you are trying to get pregnant in various ways, but I feel sorry that the results were not good. According to various studies, AMH has no direct relationship with pregnancy. In Oriental Medicine, it is treated to improve the constitution for pregnancy. In our clinic, about 30 questions are asked about the infertile patient's constitution and we treat in many ways to improve your ovarian capacity. For this purpose, not only acupuncture but also moxibustion and herbal medicine are used, and a particular meditation practice for pregnancy is also introduced. However, there is no way to guarantee 100% in any case. Just one thing, based on our experiences, it is clear that the probability of success is very high, if you are treated before age 35. Thank you. READ MORE
